weird thing happened with my r5 today.. dual cards didn't write and hif..

so i'm shooting a kids basketball game.  i just installed a new 256gb cf card in there.  i had the camera to a parent who is an eos r user.

i get the camera home and i noticed that some pictures went to the sd card and some went to the cf express.  i just got my camera back.  before i remember images went to both.

i also thought it was weird that 34 pics he took went to HIF.  someone check me here and tell me is that even possible if u have both cards installed that it wouldn't write to both cards?  i digging through settings and i don't see where write both card settings is.

also check me and let me know is it possible to have one card get HIF and the other card get jpg?  i know u can send raw to one card and jpg to the other.

please lets not debate raw blah blah.  i didn't think it is possible to send hif to cf express and jpg to sd.

i really had high hopes for hif.  but since i didn't have a cf express reader, i had to use the canon utility to transfer the pictures to my pc. very cumbersome.  then use the eos utility to convert all the images back to jpg.

Thanks!!!
